Stardust, Texas #3
A sexy sports superstar discovers his body isn’t the only thing that needs healing in this newest Stardust, Texas novel from New York Times bestselling author Lori Wilde…
With major league good looks and talent, Dallas Gunslingers relief pitcher Axel Richmond was living the good life. Even if the roar of the crowd could never distract him from the loss of his young son. But now with an injured shoulder and his career on the line, Axel is stuck recuperating at a ranch in Stardust, Texas . . . striking out only with his gorgeous physical therapist.
Kasha Carlyle has one week to get Axel back in action or she can kiss her much-needed job with the Gunslingers goodbye. And any chance to seek custody of the orphaned half-sister she never knew existed. She quickly learns that Axel’s guarded heart also needs healing . . . requiring all kinds of sneaky plays and sexy moves in extra innings.
Review: Although this book could be read as a standalone I highly suggest you start from the beginning to get a full effect of the family, them falling in love and the magic of the chest.
In this book it's finally Kasha's turn to fall in love even if she doesn't want to. The last thing she wants is to end up like her biological parents did. She finds out she has a half sister and Kasha wants to raise her but it's not as easy as she thinks.
Axel's doctors want him to have surgery but it's a 50/50 chance that he could get better or he could get worse. After loosing his son the only thing he has left is baseball until Kasha comes into his life.
I really liked these two characters together. Kasha was more snarky and playful in this book with Axel around then the previous books. They had really great chemistry and attraction from the very beginning. I love how they flirted and worked together all while trying to be professional. I was dying for them to finally get together!
I love the idea of the chest being passed down from sister to sister. I though Wilde made that fun and I couldn't wait to see what each sister would find once they found the key to open it. Although Kasha didn't seem to be a big believer in the chest for herself I loved how finally she gave in to give it a try.
This story is cute, funny, emotional and will win your heart over. Wilde does an excellent job on making you feel like you are right there in this world she has created. I thought this book was unique and I loved the creativity that was brought to this story. I honestly can't wait for the next book and to see what else is in the chest.
